SWA Private/Incognito

We have identified that SWA does not work when the user is browsing in Private or Incognito window. Is this a desired functionality and/or was identified by anyone else?

You'll need to go into the browser settings and allow the Okta Secure Web Authentication plugin to be used in that mode.  (i.e. in Chrome there's a checkbox in the Extension settings to "Allow in Incognito")

No, it is still not working.

You also have to ensure that the plugin is installed in Incognito Mode. This mode represents a different profile, which means you have to reinstall the plugin specifically for Incognito Mode.
